How to outline Japanese fonts in PDF

Recommended Posts

I use Affinity Designer for iPad.
When PDF including Japanese fonts is read, characters are garbled. Of course, Japanese fonts are already installed on ipad.
I can't even specify an alternative fonts.
In Illustrator, there is a way to outline Japanese fonts with the placement function.
In Affinity Designer, Japanese fonts cannot be outlined using the placement function.
How can I outline Japanese fonts in PDF including Japanese fonts?

I have uploaded a sample PDF including Japanese fonts.

Thank you.

But what I want to know is not how to export PDF from Affinity Designer for iPad, but how to import PDF  including Japanese fonts into Affinity Designer for iPad.

And I want to import the Japanese fonts of the PDF as an outline.

Please compare the result of opening my sample01.pdf with Adobe Acrobat Reader and the result of opening it with Affinity Designer for iPad.


The method of illustrator is written on this site. It is a Japanese site.
